Nice "seeing" you again as well. Jayme and I have the fudge recipe (appeared on the show once). We normally make about 5-7 batches this time of year.

Sure, why not!

Heh. I just realized I already killed the "cookies only" rule when I posted a pic of those Christmas tree cupcakes.

Jim,
Thanks for the fudge recipe. I'm not familiar with "King syrup" but maybe I've lead a sheltered life. What is it?

I believe it is a north east thing. It's a brand of corn syrup.

I made these for a cookie swap a few years ago and they were popular.

Quick and Easy Peppermint Cookies
1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury Refrigerated Sugar Cookie Dough
1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1 tsp Peppermint extract
20 round hard peppermint candies, crushed
1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips (White, Semi-sweet or Milk what ever your preference)
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in 1/4 cup all-purpose flour until well blended. Add in peppermint extract and 3/4 of the crushed peppermint candies, reserve some to sprinkle on top of finished cookies. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Bake 10-14 minutes until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute on baking sheet then remove to cooling rack.While cookies are baking melt chocolate chips in microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring between each interval until melted Dip half of each cookie into melted chocolate and sprinkle reserved candies on top. Place dipped cookies onto a wax paper lined tray until set.

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies
(courtesy of allrecipes.com with some modifications)
I often double the recipe, which, depending on how big you make the cookies, gets you 6-7 dozen soft nummy fall-tasting cookies. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup canola oil
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

1. Combine pumpkin, sugars, canola oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, spices, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda into the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.

2. Add vanilla and chocolate chips.

3. Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheets and bake at 350F (175C) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.

Enjoy!

I make something like this only instead of chocolate chips, I use butterscotch chips!! These cookies also freeze very well with parchment paper in between the layers.

Here's mine

Buckeyes

1 stick of butter softened
2 cups of peanut butter
2 1/2 cups of powered sugar
3 cups of rice krispies
Mix all together, then roll into balls. Then dip into chocolate. Refrigerate until chocolate is hardened.
These are really easy and they go fast. Very sweet and rich!
